Oakbourne Wedding: Lafayette, LA

July 18, 2023

Jamie and Alex’s love story unfolded into a remarkable wedding celebration this past January! As their dedicated wedding coordinator, it was an absolute pleasure to help bring their vision to life and execute a day that perfectly reflects their unique story and personalities. We’re swooning all over again thinking about the enchanting details of their special day.

It’s clear to see that no detail was missed by Jamie during the planning process which allowed Kim with Kimbrali Photography to capture some seriously magic detail shots during prep! We have all agreed that Jamie has the most beautiful smile and it couldn’t be wiped off her face once she put her wedding dress on. She was a true vision and could not have picked a more perfect dress from Town and Country Bridal! The bridesmaids started their day in matching pajamas and quickly transformed into the most beautiful bridesmaids dress – blue is a staple around here, so we were completely on board with these! We also have to mention Mrs. Cherie’s Mother of the Bride dress, it was seriously stunning and one of our favorites to date! We love a fashionista mom!

The love of a dad for his daughter is always so apparent on wedding days. The father/daughter first look is usually the queue to break out the tissues (for us too!). This is without a doubt one of our favorite moments on wedding days. We purposely structure the wedding day timeline so this moment can move a little slower than the rest of the day allowing dad a few minutes to soak in his baby girl. This sweet moment was shared between Jamie and her dad before heading to church for the ceremony.

Set against the backdrop of a Louisiana winter day, Jamie and Alex’s wedding contained so much pure sweetness and joy. Jamie and Alex chose not to see each other until they were at the altar – they were both so excited and filled with butterflies looking forward to that moment. The air was filled with anticipation and excitement, as their loved ones gathered to celebrate their union at St. Bernard in Breaux Bridge. They said “I do” in front of their closest family and friends with a ceremony filled with shared laughs and a few happy tears.

Guests then made their way to Oakbourne Country Club for the reception, which was a true celebration! The venue was filled with an abundance of florals, adding a touch of elegance and romance to the entire ambiance. We loved the personal touches that they included such as the quilt guest sign in and golf ball themed groom’s table – just look at those golf cake balls from Piece of Cake! We always encourage our couples to find ways to include touches that tell the story of who they are and these components did a great job of that!

Oakbourne was a great choice for wedding venue, it has so many exceptional qualities and recently underwent a full renovation. With its stunning aesthetics and top-tier facilities, Oakbourne provided the ideal setting to bring their dream wedding to life and was the perfect place to create everlasting memories surrounded by their loved ones.

It was truly a day brimming with love, happiness and a seriously good party. Nola Dukes Band kept everyone entertained all night long and there was even a special performance by the bride herself! Dirk Guidry did an on site painting during the reception and so many guests gathered around to watch him work; what a truly talented guy. Of course, there was no lack of dancing and this reception was even complete with a second line – the napkins used were from the wedding of Jamie’s parents in 1989!
As a final, late night treat Village Deaux provided kolaches and donut holes – what a crowd pleaser!
Jamie and Alex’s wedding day was a true testament to their love. From the charming golf-themed cake balls to the beautifully renovated Oakbourne venue, every detail was carefully chosen to create an unforgettable experience for the couple and their guests. It was an honor to be part of their journey and witness the magic of their love come alive on this remarkable day. Cheers to Jamie and Alex as they begin their lifelong journey together!

She is thinking about things you aren’t thinking about, doing things you wouldn’t think to do, and taking care of stuff you would have lost had she not been there. The day of timeline that she created and communicated to our vendors allowed me the peace of mind that everyone knew where to be and when.

Katie was a vital part to making our wedding day flow so smoothly
